How to Become a Pharmacist in a Primary Care Network

Tuesday, 10 September 2019

Royal Pharmaceutical Society, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1AW

Event Overview

Join us on Tuesday 10 September for a day focused on the role of pharmacists in primary care networks (PCNs). 


PCNs are a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan and aim to bring general practices together with other sectors including community pharmacy, hospital, community services, social care, mental health and voluntary services. Attending this free event will equip you with all the knowledge you need plus the opportunity to develop the skills required to become a pharmacist in a primary care network.

Learn about the role of a PCN pharmacist and what the future could hold for pharmacists working in collaboration with, or employed by, PCNs.


The programme will enable you to: 

  • Understand the new NHS structures such as PCNs; how they will support the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan; how they work with sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) / Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) and the impact on pharmacy
  • Hear from, and put questions to, colleagues already working in a PCN; understand more about the skills required and top tips 
  • Confidently apply for roles within PCNs; gain support with application templates and practice interview questions
  • Work through practical case studies looking at Structured Clinical Medication Reviews to help you in these roles
  • Find out how the RPS can support you in the new changing NHS landscape

Attending this event will also support revalidation entries.
